Check out the quick video I made of the recipe for Cool Ranch Pork Chops. If you’re hungry for more, please visit and subscribe to my YouTube channel.
There are only four ingredients you’ll need to make Cool Ranch Pork Chops. They are boneless pork chops, bottled ranch dressing, cool ranch tortilla chips, and smoked paprika. Salt and pepper are needed too, but I don’t consider those actual ingredients. To me, they are an essential cooking tool, much like a frying pan, or casserole dish. I know that my stance on salt and pepper is somewhat controversial, but it’s how I’ve always felt. I’d love to hear your opinion. What are your thoughts on the salt and pepper theory?
Cool Ranch Pork Chops is one of the simplest dinner recipes, ever! And, as long as you (or someone you love) doesn’t eat all the cool ranch chips before dinner (hide them if you need to), in no time flat you’ll be sitting down to a meal that is family tested and kid approved, with a hearty two thumbs up!!

As you may or may not already know, I’m a decorative painter as well as a food blogger. My passions for both of these things (food and painting) runs deep. I specialize in hand painted glassware items and fabrics. The apron you see below is one of my favorites, and it’s a quote from a woman I admire and the one who got me interested in cooking. The one and only, Julia Child!
The aprons I paint on are a high quality chef’s style apron. I offer both black and white. They’re each a 65/35 cotton poly blend, have adjustable neck straps, have extra long ties, and two large front pockets. I paint with bright vivid fabric paint and then heat set the design for durability and long life. My hand painted aprons are machine washable and tumble dryable. Custom orders are always welcome. If there is an apron design I can paint for you, please don’t hesitate to contact me or visit my shop.
